Hi Folks! It is my great pleasure to participate in the Calling All Sistahs Blog Hop. You may have heard that Michele (CAS-ual Fridays owner and designer) was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. If not, you can read her personal story here. Michele is not one to sit back and let things keep her down, so she is making it her personal goal to fight back in more than one way. We are kicking of a monthly reminder on the 17th of each month to do your self exams (now would be a great time!!) To start things off right, a new collection of stamps and Fri-dies is also being released, with its own pinkalicious packaging. 50% of the profits from this collection will be donated to breast cancer research and awareness programs in honor of all who have been, and will be, affected by breast cancer.
This is one of the Fri-dies ... I love that it's large enough to make a cute little card out of it! Just make sure that the top of your die is slightly above the fold of your card. So easy. The detailed stamp gives such a nice texture to it. The sentiment is actually in two pieces, you can use an "I'm" or a "we're" to start it off.
You can make a 3" x 4" envelope with the We-R-Memories Keepers envelope punch board to fit the ribbon of hope card.
Spoiler alert for Michele, don't look unless you've already received this in the mail!!
There are lots of little phrases included in the set, which are perfect for adding to your envelope. Also, you can get creative with writing your sentiment inside the card ... just follow the direction of the ribbon. Note: if you're going to mail an envelope that's smaller than 3 1/2" x 5" in the US, you'll have to add additional postage ($0.71) since it's non-machinable. I think it's worth it ... good things come in small packages!
Off to your next stop at the lovely Catherine Pooler's blog. The full list of stops is at the CAS-ual Fridays Stamps blog.
